Trends aren’t for everyone, but a having a true sense of fashion means knowing how to incorporate trends into your own personal style. There are plenty of trends for Spring and Summer 2016, and one of them is the ‘Off-the-Shoulder’ trend – here are 5 different ways to wear it.

The shape is flouncy and free, and the smocked elastic neckline means it can be worn both on or off the shoulder. It’s also available in cream, grey, blue and orange, so you might just have to add a couple to your wardrobe.
